AUDITIONS - "Getting Dark" by Joe Graham (Banbury Cross Players)

8 March 2023 - 7:30pm - 9 March 2023 - 7:30pm

"Getting Dark is BCP’s entry into the Lighthorne and Oxford Drama Network 2023 One Act Festivals, directed by Terry Gallager.

An award-winning dramatisation of the true story of The Ribbon of Truth by Kal Gibson, Joe Graham's play is a moving and dark exploration of a young girl’s descent into blindness.

For six-year old Karen, the world is gradually shrinking and getting dark.  Colours that meant so much to her are slowly ebbing away.  She needs artificial light all day and all through the night.  Mum and Dad love her but have a new baby and are finding it increasingly difficult to cope with their daughter’s condition.  They make a life-changing decision.

Roles available
  • Karen (plays adult and 6 year old self)
  • Mother/Troll Woman (doubled)
  • Dad/Mr Marks (doubled)
There will be a Read through of the play on 2 March 2023 at The Mill Arts Centre, 7.30pm.  Auditions are also at The Mill Arts Centre.  Everyone welcome.  You do not need to be a member to come to the read through or audition.
